GDS Ranks in top 150 of Managed Service Providers.

LAFAYETTE, LA, USA, June 14, 2022 / -- Global Data Systems, a leading managed service provider, announced today that CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, has named Global Data Systems to its Managed Service Provider (MSP) 500 list in the Elite 150 category for 2022. CRN’s annual MSP 500 list identifies the leading service providers in North America whose forward-thinking approaches to managed services are changing the landscape of the IT channel, helping end users increase efficiency and simplify IT solutions, while maximizing their return on investment.

With many customers still recovering from the impact of the ongoing pandemic, MSPs have become a vital part of the success of businesses worldwide. MSPs not only empower organizations to leverage intricate technologies but also help them keep a strict focus on their core business goals without straining their budgets.

The annual MSP 500 list is divided into three sections: the MSP Pioneer 250, recognizing companies with business models weighted toward managed services and largely focused on the SMB market; the MSP Elite 150, recognizing large, data center-focused MSPs with a strong mix of on- and off-premises services; and the Managed Security 100, recognizing MSPs focused primarily on off-premises and cloud-based security services.

“In addition to having to adjust their own business operations to account for the changed conditions during the pandemic, MSPs have also seen increased demand for their managed communications, collaboration and security services,” said Blaine Raddon, CEO of The Channel Company. “The solution providers on our 2022 MSP 500 list deserve credit for their innovative and game-changing approaches to managed services in these unpredictable times, as well as their ability to optimize operational efficiencies and systems without straining IT budgets.”

“Once again, we are tremendously honored to be included in the Elite 150 of top MSP’s,” said Chris Vincent, President of Global Data Systems. “Our commitment to making IT simple for organizations remains our upmost priority. It is our mission to keep their environments secure, agile, and cost efficient. In this ever-changing technology landscape, we continue to invest in staff development, internal processes and critical services while remaining focused on what matters most…our employees and customers.”

The MSP 500 list was featured in the February 2022 issue of CRN and online at
